Some of my colleagues advice me to watch series about Sherlock Holmes. Did you watch it? What do you think is it worth watching?

I just tried to compile a post for you with lots of pics re Sherlock Holmes, but the forum is «glyuchit» and has thrown out my post, but I am a great fan of the Russian Sherlock Holmes — Livanov, the Russian version. There are zillions of versions in the world- the American one, the English one, the Russian one, and so on and so on — even the Japanese one. Here in England they re invent Sherlock all the time, the last version of it is crap in my view with Martin Freeman (cause for me — he is forever the «Tim from the Office series» — it is hard to explain), Jude Law is of course handsome, but you know — they keep reinventing and reinventing to the point where one can't stand it. You might well like the Sherlock series — that came out on BBC — because it is a more modern adaptation — i.e. — the events are happening in our times in London now, but for me it is all like you know — give us a break.

By the way, Livanov was given OBE (Order of the British Empire) by the Queen for promoting world culture around the world, and I wanted to post his pics — he was driven to 221B Baker Street in one of the Royal carriages, there are photos of him in the Museum and the Queen also commissioned for special silver coin edition with his profile to be issued in Australia. So — he is the most recognized, best Sherlock over here. Honestly. My relatives were gobsmacked when they went into the museum just to see how many accolades Livanov has.

I love Livanov's Sherlock too. My favourite hands down.

I was talking about Sherlock with Benedict Cumberbatch. Is this the crap you mentioned or it's okay?

That is the one I was talking about with Martin Freeman as Dr Watson. It is not crap crap, it is something different. It is a modernised version, where Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) lives in modern 21 century London. It is interesting, it is just to me — all those actors were in other TV productions here — which were very popular (like Freeman was Tim in «The Office», etc), so I struggle to take it seriously, but you might like it — it is a modern take on it so to speak:

In this modernized version of the Conan Doyle characters, using his detective plots, Sherlock Holmes lives in early 21st century London and acts more cocky towards Scotland Yard's detective inspector Lestrade because he's actually less confident. Doctor Watson is now a fairly young veteran of the Afghan war, less adoring and more active.

Grin (25771),
We had a bit of not so good news today re my daughter, a bit upsetting. Do you remember I told you she had a foot injury? Initially, we all thought — the doctors, Angelina (ballet school principal) and us that it is just a minor soft tissue damage to her tendon or ligament in the foot and would take a few weeks — as the ligament wasn't torn. I had torn ligaments before — it is ultra painful and you can't walk but on crutches or limping, she can walk allright, it is just a bit painful — she goes to school, performs on stage at the drama school, etc., we just were told to stay away from ballet for a few weeks. But it just didn't seem to go away and she had a special scan today at the hospital and it turned out is something completely different. Basically, It is like a little benign cyst which formed inside her foot, because it bled internally at one point and because there was nowhere for the blood to go, it kind of crusted up inside and the body built a protective tissue around it. Apparently, it is a rather common injury for ballet dancers. But it can take months to heal up and there is nothing you can do but wait. Because the body is sort of … for want of a better word — absorbing it slowly. They said it started out probably at 5 mm, now it is about 2 mm. But it is not something that can be operated on, as that will be more damaging to the foot. It will go on its own and is going, but slowly. So she will definitely miss this June Standard 3 exams, as they said it will go much quicker if she continues to stay off ballet, ballet will aggravate it. She will resume ballet of course and will join the next set of exams instead (she is ahead with her exams in ballet anyway), but she will probably have to join a different group. Angelina did say that her Associate ballet place is not gonna be affected. Still — it is a bit sad. But there you go. Ballet is so hard on one's feet — cause a lot of the time your whole body weight is placed on your tip toes.

Figure skating and sports are also hard on people's body, I read some stuff from those who used to be in professional sports like that and a lot of them are saying that by the age of 30−35 they feel like OAPs (over aged pensioners), cause of all the abuse their bodies had to take in their youth.

In any case, it is not anything drastic, it will go away and she will be fine, just — looks like she will have to miss a lot of ballet in the nearest future.

I ordered her some £200 special trainers online — which apparently help this condition to heal quicker.

In any case, this time tomorrow (well, a bit later) — we'll be in Venice.

Here is 32 years old Carolina Kostner from Italy competing and European championships 2018.



Some people say she is most artistic skater ever. What do you think, is it true?)

But I agree with you, Caro is an exception to the rule. Usually ladies in figure skating retire at the age of 21−23.
